That's odd.  Do you have

1) PuTTY configured to use UTF-8 as its character set
2) Your LC_ variables set to en_US.UTF-8 in the remote shell
3) a vim compiled with multibyte support
4) encoding set to utf-8 in vim


You do know of Ctrl-K? Ctrl-K <letter1> <letter2>, see :digraphs

Yup.  Digraphs are handy, and I have several custom ones defined in my
.vimrc, but I always find myself using some weird character I have no
digraph for. :)
